MTA should donate one days worth of the Verrazano Bridge fares to help rebuild Staten Island

The MTA Bridges & Tunnels have been collecting ridiculous fares for the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge since November 21, 1964(47 yrs) and what have the residents of Staten Island received? A deteriorating bridge, bumper to bumper traffic, and fare increases routinely. Its time for them to show their appreciation and support to the Staten Island residents and affected areas. On average, about 200,000 cars travel over that bridge each day...That's about $1.5 million in daily tolls collected even if we low balled that number. I would like too see the MTA Bridges & Tunnels donate one full days(24 hours) worth of Verrazano fares to www.projecthospitality.org to help the families that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Please, lets get as many signatures as possible and make this happen. Please share this with everyone! Thanks and lets help rebuild!
